Green Goodness Sandwich


  • 2 slices of your favorite bread, toasted (gluten-free if you're avoiding gluten)
  • 1 big scoop avocado, smashed (~ ½ of an avocado)
  • flaky sea salt + freshly ground black pepper
  • red pepper flakes (optional with the amount depending on your tolerance for heat)
  • your favorite pesto
  • 8 - 10 cucumbers, sliced into thin rounds
  • 8 - 10 slices tomatillo, sliced thin
  • 2 thick slices smoked mozzarella
  • small handful of spinach leaves
  • sprouts


  • Mash the avocado and spread it on one slice of the bread.
  • Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper, red pepper flakes (if using), and flaky sea salt.
  • On the other slice, spread a layer of pesto
  • To the mashed avocado slice, pile on the fillings: spinach leaves, fresh mozzarella, tomatillo, cucumber rounds, and a little pile of sprouts.
  • If you'd like to add a little protein, a poached or fried egg would be wonderful. My husband likes to add a few slices of bacon.
  • (Optional, but extra delicious: Once the sandwich is assembled, toast it in a panini press for a couple of minutes)
